I'll write an early draft tonight while watching the football matches. If I'm good, I'll send them in tomorrow.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Dave, I loved seeing Michael Douglas on there.  Love that film.  "what, I'm the bad guy?!"  Cool to see so many on your list that we share.  We should hang out.  What's half way between Portland and Melbourne?  Midway Island.  They got a movie theater there? (forgive me if that's not where you're from)

Thank you ferris, Portland great city, it has been quite a few years since I was last there, Hawaii would be about half way. I am sure they have a cinema or 2. Some great movies on both your male and female lists, some I still have to see (Including all the Godfathers; and There Will Be Blood. I am so embarrassed)

So true.

(That doesn't excuse the Godfathers revelation, though...)
